We have recently upgraded our Toro irrigation operating system from Sitepro to Lynx.
This is a definite upgrade and appears to be far more user friendly. While changing the holes for the saturday competition yesterday I was able to water all of the new greens, tees and walkways from my mobile phone on the way round.
A big thank you to Adrian Mortram RHA and MJ Abbott for installation.
Saturday was a beautiful day for golf and with temperatures beginning to rise we are seeing some growth and germination of seeding work done over the last 2 weeks. Rested greens will open on Friday and the courses will resume summer conditions.
Amazing how well the Course Furniture has turned out after Cleaning and treatment with teak oil.
Fantastic job done once again by our Greenkeeping team.
Rescue treatment on the Valley links is now taking effect with rye grass beginning to die off.
Fairways and green surrounds have been sprayed on all of the new holes including Dunluce new 7th & 8th followed by solid tining to create holes allowing for successful over-seeding work.
The benefit of this work will be removal of coarse rye grass and more consistent surfaces. This should be achieved within the next 4-6 weeks.
